Alto Saxphone Mouthpiece Rafael Navarro Maestra Ebonite
Available in Black HR and Marble HR, the Alto Maestra is a copy of an 1940’s Meyer Brothers Alto similar to the one played by Cannonball Adderley. Navarro however; has improved on the curve length and baffle combination allowing this Maestra to have more volume, color range and playability when comparing to the old vintage Meyer Bros while still having that Classic Phil Woods-Cannonball Sound.
The Maestra is currently being played by Rosario Giuliani, Anibal Rojas, Bobby Martinez, Vince Herring, and so many other great saxophone players in the world. All of them are amazed by its response and range of power and colors it offers while remaining extremely flexible and easy to play.
The Alto Maestra is quite possibly he best Jazz alto mouthpiece ever made.
The German hard rubber is a classic compound with the same formula being used in the greatest mouthpieces from 1920’s thru 1960’s. Navarro machines every mouthpiece out of a stock bar and they are not molded. The process is quite expensive however much more accurate than molded products. The Black HR has a dense and darker tone.
